Good before or after an intense workout, for on the go, especially if you are cycling, or in a pinch if you might otherwise yield to temptation and get fast food. The comination of fast and slow digesting proteins, simple and complex carbohydrates and healthy fats are good for sustained energy. For lower sugar, substitute sugar-free syrups for the corn syrup, or for lower fat, substitute dry peanut butter powder (I've never done this, so I don't know how the texture will turn out). However, if you are an athlete on the go, the relatively low levels of fat and sugar shouldn't be an issue.
